rebuild the auto, or convert to manual???
We currently have an EB Fairmont Ghia, 5.0 Lt, last monday, 3rd went in the auto, we have gotten a quote of approx 2 - 3K to replace with another recoed trans, but we have also been told that we would be beta off finding an EB V8 with a manual or auto in it that has been written off, and I am sure that most of u guys/gals out there know exactly how hard that is.
What I am really wanting to know is, would it be cheaper to convert to a manual or just buy another auto trans for the EB?
We are sorta on a tight budget atm, as we just got the gearbox in the lux replaced...( 2 1/2Ks worth).
I am situated in country Vic if any1 can point me in the right direction or has any suggestions, it would be much appreciated.
We both miss driving a manual, but I currently have diffuculty with a manual if it isnt easy to get into gear.
This car is currently for sale as well, but we are wanting to fix/replace/convert the existing transmission atm, as the price seems to scare a lot of ppl off from buying it or looking at it.
